Amace Solutions Pvt. Ltd., an Ace Micromatic Group company and a metal AM solutions provider based in Bangalore, India has launched the ALM-400 metal 3D printer. The powder bed fusion metal 3D printer does much more than just a prototype manufacturing but has been designed and developed to suit serial production applications.
According to TP Sridhar, CEO & Director, Ace Designers Ltd., “The ALM-400 has been designed keeping high productivity (serial production) in focus. With some of the unique features of the machine, ALM-400 will meet and exceed the expectations of additive machine users. With enhanced user experience and intuitive feedback, the machine is convenient to operate and troubleshoot.”
ALM-400 Metal 3D Printer
The Ace Micromatic Group team has indigenously designed and engineered the ALM-400 metal 3D printer to deliver unmatched reliability, high rates of productivity in metal printing along with faster Return on Investment (ROI) for the customer.
The ALM-400 metal 3D printer has a build volume measuring 410mm x 410mm x 450mm allowing for large sized parts to be printed. The machine features a dual laser system with full scan field covered by the two high powered 1kW lasers. The dual lasers can assist in faster printing thus suited for serial production applications. The machine can print parts with layer thicknesses varying anywhere between 30 microns to 120 microns.
The machine can print a wide range of materials such as Stainless Steels, Aluminium alloys, Maraging Steels, Inconel, Titanium alloys and many more.
For superior precision in axes positioning, longer life and enhanced serviceability the machine has on board all axes controlled by servo motors. A lot of research and innovation has been brought about through this machine and this is evident from the many smart features on the machine that exist.
One such feature is the innovative multi-blade recoating system designed to enhance the productivity of printing especially during the production related activity. The smart powder management system, in-situ inspection of part dimensions, automatic filtration system, user friendly digital cockpit format for data display on the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the remote monitoring & control of the machine are some of the many features that make the machine a smart one and most suited for a production environment!
“The versatile machine is developed on the strong foundation of our vast experience in machine building and understanding of metal working machines. Backed with industry expertise and having involved in the technology for the past many years, amace, today has a better understanding of customer requirements. The team has understood the complexities in manufacturing faced by customers and has the right solution through the AM process.”– LS Umesh, CEO & Director, Ace Manufacturing Systems Ltd.
The Ace Micromatic Group has developed different configurations of machine to suit wide range of industrial applications in the metal cutting space mostly catering to the growing needs of the industry. Many of the group’s existing customers are looking to adopt additive manufacturing technology to stay competitive and relevant, hence it was necessary to build capability in this emerging technology. Through ALM-400, amace solutions intends to address the hesitancy of the manufacturers to adopt metal AM in their mainstream manufacturing activities.
